Digital Twins

Executive Boardroom - 2:50 pm - 3:15 pm

A closely related topic to Autonomous Entities, digital 'twinning' is the exact replication of real world objects virtually and feeding the virtual entity with sensor measurements from the real world. Product recalls can be greatly mitigated by running computer simulations to study how the real-world twin is responding to real, unpredictable situations, saving companies time and money before mass producing a product. This is particularly important for the aircraft manufacturing, energy, and defense industries. If powerplants had digital twins, potentially catastrophic disasters could be averted by recognizing patterns before they become a problem.
